Begonias at the Rose & Sweet Pea Show
Garden World, Burnham on Sea, Somerset
Basil Billinger

      This show held over the second weekend of June is a first opportunity for Lakin Earl to show his prowess.

   Right on his doorstep, he starts a couple of tubers off in his airing cupboard over Christmas to make this early date. Lakin has struggled this year like most of us but these early flowers fly the flag for begonias.

   Here are this years exhibits, which made a contrasting splash of colour to the rose and sweat peas. By the way, his peas took pride of place in the vegetable class!
